Temperance to be a virtue must be free, and not forced.— C. A. Bartol
The most seductive C. A. Bartol quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you
Beauty is no local deity, like the Greek and Roman gods, but omnipresent.
Gentleness and kindness will make our homes a paradise upon earth.
Fine manners are like personal beauty,--a letter of credit everywhere.
Paradoxical as it may seem, God means not only to make us good, but to make us also happy, by sickness, disaster and disappointment.
Self-condemnation is God's absolution; and pleading guilty, acquittal at his bar.
Every pure thought is a glimpse of God.
Freedom is not caprice but room to enlarge.
Father, mother, child, are the human trinity, whose substance must not be divided nor its persons confounded. As well reconstruct your granite out of the grains it is disintegrated into as society out of the dissolution of wedded love.

Private sincerity is a public welfare.
Patience is nobler motion than any deed.
On the attraction between man and woman society is based;
but its refined is greater than its gross force, and its weight is like the gravitation of the globe.
Children are marvelously and intuitively correct physiognomists.
The youngest of them exhibit this trait.
Religion is indeed woman's panoply; no one who wishes her happiness would divest her of it; no one who appreciates her virtues would weaken her best security.

We must learn that competence is better than extravagance, that worth is better than wealth, that the golden calf we have worshiped has no more brains than that one of old which the Hebrews worshiped. So beware of money and of money's worth as the supreme passion of the mind. Beware of the craving for enormous acquisition.
Hope is the parent of Faith.
Character halts without aid of the imagination, which our classes in Shakespeare and Browning, music and drawing, recognize not only as amusement and by-play of the mind, but a co-ordinate power. Its work is unhappily styled fiction; for to idealize is to realize.
